    Do you have tomany programs running in the background, off start up? you can control that by running "msconfig" but becarefull what you disable! Hope this is helpful.

    About a million and one things.

    Please clarify some things. What Windows are you running, who is your PC's vendor, how much RAM, etc...

    Wow, what a mouthful. How about starting your own thread buddy?

    BTW, what are you trying to ask? "Info about an admin" sounds pretty suspicious, and is pretty vague. Who's admin? Google's admin? My admin? Or the admin your trying to hack?

    Urmmm..... have you simply googled for "whois" or "Whois search" yet? Never mind... just look around in the URL or some other site like this for awhile.

    I'm running on Windows Xp Home Edition
    224MB of RAM
    AMD Althon 1900
    It's totally brand new.

    When I start it up, It works fine, and I got no auto-start up probgrams yet since there's nothing actually in this computer since It's brand new bought.
    When I start it up it works great, then after about 5 minutes it just goes slow, even the mouse pointer goes In slow motion, then If i open a program Its just unbelivably slow.

    I don't know what to do! Hope that helps. thanks

    Ah there's your problem your running XP
    Sorry but i hate XP. I have had nothing but problems with it.....

    I had the same problem, so i just formatted the harddrive, and installed 98.
    Now there's no more problems and my system run's perfect.

    Anyhow just search around here a lil there are a few threads that might help you, but in the end you might have to format your hard drive and reinstall everything.....

    Well i could be wrong but this is just my opion.

    Cheers
